MEMBERS DAY Presentations


Ray McNeice




Members’ Day Meeting + Presentation
May 5, 2021  
7:00–9:00 pm
Join us on May 5th for our monthly Members' Day meeting, followed by a presentation by visual arts advocate and painter Ray McNeice.

Ray is, first and foremost, a painter “en plein air”. His style is a product of a long career in graphic design… a concern for shape and form, eye movement and spatial relationships. His medium of choice is transparent watercolour. Ray likes its brilliance, its immediacy and its transportability. His work has a sense of movement leaning toward an objective abstract approach. Painting with controlled washes, working smoothly with an eye toward the balance of forms and shapes give his work its distinctive character. He also works in acrylics.

He has participated in a number group and juried exhibitions at The Latcham Gallery, solo exhibitions at The Beacher Café in Toronto, The Kent Farndale Gallery in Port Perry and has been a member of the Stouffville Studio Tour since 2002. Ray was educated at the Ontario College of Art and had a 46 year career as a Graphic Design Professional and Creative Director in Toronto.

Ray is a strong advocate for the visual arts community in York Region sitting as Board Chair of The Latcham Art Centre and the Stouffville Studio Tour.
